Wizbaa Machine Works - CCI Powertubes!

EDIT: Well I messed these tubes up, the valve end is to long. Im working on a part to salvage the ones I have done. More details here:interesting power tube options

I'll have more material in soon and will make more, but these are on hold temporarily.

/Edit

Hello MCB,

I've spent many hours this past year getting these things right, and im finally ready to put these into production. I'll be updating this thread as I go, usually only a few at a time because these are all spun by me on my lathe.

Here's a good shot of the difference in port size between my custom powertube , and a stock CCI P/T. Look closely and you'll see the trimming i've done to the brass cup.


The ports in my P/T are .155". 2 ports X .155 = .310" total

the port in the CCI P/T are .088". 3 ports X .088 = .264" total

The threads on my Tubes are also 10-32 as opposed to 6-32 on the CCI tubes. These are much stronger, and will never snap off in your valve.





As seen above, the ID of my tubes are also larger than stock the stock CCI P/T. Here's a thread comparing the IDs of a bunch of different P/ts.

http://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/c...imensions.html

The larger port sizes will increase you velocity by aprox 25fps for the .1875" ID and the .200" ID will increase it by a reported 40fps! These are very effective with short barreled guns, and in low pressure set ups. Each tube comes fitted with a modified cup and seal, with additional seals becoming available later.

Current Stock:
3 - .1875 ID
2 - .200 ID

SALES ON HOLD!!!$35 each, + $5 S/H.

Your giant ports look great, good job. I found similar spec'd tubes very helpful in my redux. What did you test these in for the listed fps increase?

I have not done testing with 12 grams, one of the people from my first batch is using them in a Redux. We will have to wait for more extensive results.

Thank you, the results for the .200ID came from two seperate testers, one using a low pressure Phantom set up and another using a Redux. These are the two set ups(low pressure, and short barreled) that I expect to benefit the most from this upgrade.

ATM I am making these to stock, in small numbers. I'll be keeping a running count near the bottom of my initial post.
